How does the Local Control Funding Formula work?
(Español)

The LCFF determines the way the state allocates money to school districts. School districts receive a uniform base grant for every student, adjusted by grade level. School districts may also receive additional supplemental grants for students with greater challenges, defined as low-income students, English learners and foster youth. Additionally, districts receive additional concentration grant funding when the numbers of these high-need students enrolled in a district make up more than 55 percent of a district’s total enrollment.

Base Grant

Per student base amount, adjusted for grade level.

Supplemental Grant

Additional funds to improve or increase services for low-income students, English learners and foster youth.

Concentration Grant

Additional funding for districts that have a high concentration (55 percent or more) of low income students, English learners and foster youth.
